Let's be honest, it can help curb the stress of doing those last minutes chores before your guests arrive. And once they arrive and you pour this colorful and flavorful cocktail they will all marvel at how well you put your party together. (The early cocktail will just be our secret.)
How to Make It
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange wedge with 10 cranberries and the minced ginger. Add the Aperol, Lillet Blanc, bitters and ice. Shake well. Double-strain the drink into an ice-filled Collins glass and top off with the hard cider. Garnish with the 3 remaining cranberries, if you like more for color don't be shy. Last slice of ginger skewered on a toothpick.
